Luke Whittaker | 2023 Special Performance

Luke Whittaker

Luke Whittaker was born out of time and has tapped into the spirit of Bocephus, Waylon Jennings and a gang of renegades from a time gone by. Luke’s lyrics deal with demons, desperation and hope. Settled in the fertile soil of Virginia, he has drawn from the well of observation of those who have struggled in life including his own obstacles. Luke has found his gift. He can lead you through an old Smokey bar all the way through to the throne of God in roughly three minutes. I suggest you go along for the ride.”             

–Grammy winning producer, Ronnie Brookshire
